Tom Cotton's curious idea of victimhood

  • ANGRY AND ENTITLED: Tom Cotton.
There U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton goes again, an angry, entitled white man suitable for the times.

Democrats have victimized Christine Blasey Ford, the accuser of Brett Kavanaugh, not the man she said tried to rape her. See, if somebody hadn't leaked her anonymous complaint to her senator and congresswoman, none of this bad publicity for Brett Kavanaugh would have happened. He'd be confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court now, just like the Federalist posse and the Kochs and their handmaidens like Cotton always intended.

Cotton ranted on a morning show today, Politico reports.

Cotton said they'll sic investigators on Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who honored Ford's request not to be made public and has now become a handy foil for Republicans because the complaint leaked out. How we don't know.

But rather than talk about angry and partisan Kavanaugh's injudicious rant, Cotton and others can complain about the process. They intend to talk over (as Kavanaugh talked over senators) the alleged assault of Ford;  the protection of Kavanaugh's partner in debauchery, Mark Judge; Kavanaugh's lies on many subjects large and small and not only attempted rape and drinking, and now the White House manipulation of additional FBI inquiries that apparently includes an attempt to silence a third sexual assault victim's complaint.

Note the spin machine-crafted line used by Kavanaugh, Trump and any other Republican you can shake a lie detector result at;

“She has been victimized by Democrats ... on a search-and-destroy mission for Brett Kavanaugh.”
Have I ever told you that Tom Cotton went to Harvard and Harvard Law? Played basketball? Ask him.
